Shooting wildlife a secondary option

If it was not for us humans feeding the wildlife, then the conservation officers would not have to do this.

If it was not for us humans feeding the wildlife and making it easier for the wildlife to come into town and not fear humans, then the conservation officers would not have to do this. They do not enjoy shooting any animal. They use that as a last option if they know the animal will return to find easy food.

If we stop making it so easy for these animals to find food then the officers can tranquillize and relocate them.
